In life, we love you dearly

In death, we love you still

In our hearts, you hold a place no one else will ever feel.


John attended The Bridge, a Street Ministry Church in Princeton, West Virginia, pastored by Eddie "Bigun" Day. 

John was an invested member of recovery that was very important to him for 26 years.  He was honest, open-minded, and willing to lead and lend a helping hand. He used his life experiences to share experiences, with strength and hope in order to lead those and guide the ones that were searching for a way out of their own kind of pain and suffering through addiction. John could not have done this alone in which we would like to recognize his sponsor (may have been more than one). His recovery family, and everyone who supported him during his journey in recovery.
